From ZDNET.co.uk: "The release of the first mobile chip based on AMD's Athlon core -- which
replaced the K6 in late 1999 -- was announced this week.

Duron, AMD's "value" chip based on the Athlon core, will be available in
NEC's LaVie U series of notebooks from 25 January and are shipping in
volume immediately. The chip is available in speed grades of 600MHz and
700MHz for $75 and $123, respectively, in 1,000-unit quantities.
